Captain J. C. W. Hall to Brigadier General Fisk
KANSAS CITY, May 13, 1864.
Brig. Gen. CLINTON B. FISK:
A small party of guerrillas crossed the Missouri River and plundered Camden. A big scare at Lexington. The counties of Jackson, Bates, Case, and the northern part of Vernon, on the Osage, full of small roving bands of guerrillas. The Second Colorado Cavalry are now constantly in the brush. I am satisfied that Quantrill leads the bushwhackers.
J. C. W. HALL,
Captain, Second Colorado Cavalry, Commanding Station.
